Our country has a growing number of projects and sites where we put the principles of sustainability into practice. Not only does sustainable travel protect nature, especially endemic species, and fight climate change, but it also supports local communities and reduces waste and pollution, traditional blights of the global tourism industry.
A sustainability mindset can help us all focus on preserving the world for future generations, while still giving tourists unforgettable experiences and locals the chance to preserve their culture and livelihoods. ‘Slow Travel’, for example, is a sustainable approach to travel where tourists spend longer in one area and get to know the locals and communities better, rather than a superficial flying visit. We strongly encourage guests to Azerbaijan to try this - we are sure that you will be amazed by the variety and richness of our different regions.
